March Favourites: Beauty Edition

Creams & Candles
Sanctuary Mandelular Body Souffle~Sanctuary are always the brand I turn to for a little self-pampering and this wonderful body cream has seen my skin through the winter months. Especially in the last few weeks, this has been my go to product on the daily. Not only does it smell divine, but the consistency and coverage is perfect for my dry prone skin.  
Burt's Bees Banana Hand Cream~Never have my hands been so relieved as to when they have this smothered on them. I always like to keep a hand cream in my bag and this one has been a particular favourite of mine in March. Plus it smells like a jar of banana icecream!
Bath & Body Works Candle in 'Sweet Pea'~It's always nice to come home and light a candle. to relax after a long day. My lovely friend Nicole brought this back from Dubai with her and I must say it is one of the nicest and longest lasting candles I have ever owned. I would recommend having a look at their range of scents! 

All The Reds!
Marc Jacobs Dot~  Nothing quite says Spring to me like a lovely, light. fruity scent. Having moved out of my deeper and more spice based fragrances, since the winter, I find Marc Jacobs fragrances always seem fitting for this season. This month I have been spritzing myself with the famous 'Dot'. With hints of Jasmine and vanilla, this times in perfectly with the blooming branches.
Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in 38~Bit of a splurge on this one, I must admit.... but as I wear red lipstick practically everyday, this felt like more of an investment. The lipstick is matte, which is great for these days, before the weather gets too warm. I also love how deep, yet bold, the shade is. 
Jewels &Nails
H&M Round Gold Earrings~I have been wearing these constantly this month, they are so intricately detailed that I never want to take them off! I love H&M jewelry, it's always so reasonably priced and I'm always excited to see what they do next.
AdventureLand Unicorn Earrings~Head over heels for these beautiful emerald and gold unicorn earrings. AdventureLand have the cutest and unique bits and bobs; best of all, the earrings came in this mermaid shell too! 
Wah London Varnish in Mating Surfaces & Barry M in Kiwi~I've been brightening up my nails with these fancy colours this month. Both are nail varnish brands that I love and collect, but these two in particular have been catching my eye more than usual,
OGX Argan Oil Shampoo~This was always my favourite shampoo, great for a big hedge of curly hair like mine. I switched between a few shampoos recently, but this one always comes out on top. That reminds me, I'm nearly running out....
Dove Hair Therapy Shampoo~I hadn't tried any of the Dove hair range before and I had heard so much about it, I decided to give it a go. Turns out, the hype is correct and I have seen massive improvements to the quality of my hair this month. My split ends are less visible and my locks generally feel softer. Definitely on my top 3 shampoos currently :)

What have your March favourites been?

Golden Brown Spring

Top. Skirt & Earrings ~ H&M/ Bag~Car Boot Sale/ Tights~Topshop/ Shoes~Topshop

Hey, Hey Spring Chickens!
So Spring has finally come around once again. And although the in-between days, of cold, blistering mornings and warm, breezy afternoons, are fickle and frequent;I am still happy to see the face of a new season. 
Although my work days dig into a lot of my week, I am still trying to find time to do little things that perk me up. Whether that means having a Mad Men marathon ( currently in the process of..), or trying to dip my paws into a jar of shortbread biscuits, or the new 70's trend. 
I do love a bit of 70's fashion and had been after a skirt similar to this H&M one for a while. Anything with pockets is always a must-have for me, even if it is just small enough to hold my lipstick. It is the perfect waist height and also a great length for my tall frame. The suede material is so comfortable and I love the button detailing. All in all, this skirt is bound to be my spring staple!

Are any of you going to embrace the 70's trend? Let me know :)

OOTD: Red Cacti

Headband~Anthropologie/Jumper~Beyond Retro/Dress~Topshop (eBay)

Hello loves,
Ohh it's March already and the hopes for warmer and brighter days will soon become a reality, I have a lot of big plans for this year and seeing a few rays of sun may just be the motivation I need to put my plans into action.
I took a trip back to Devon this weekend, to see my parents and celebrate my mums birthday. It's always so nice to take a few days away from city life and remember the tranquil and quiet nature of home with my family.
The outfit pictured is what I wore to the zoo on one of our adventures at home. I remember seeing this Topshop dress a year or so ago, because everyone who was anyone was wearing it. But, as usual, me being late to the band wagon, I only purchased it from eBay a few weeks back. I feel like I have fallen in love with it all over again, now I finally have one of my own, I layered up and wore this gold glitter roll neck, a Christmas gift from Beyond Retro (here), I am starting to really like red and gold together.

 I still can't wait to have a huge Spring clean! What are your plans for the season?
